burrowing armadillo

If you stand still for more than 30 seconds in the woods, you can hear the loud rustling of leaves. I watched this armadillo zigzag past me with no knowledge of my presence. When I walked towards him, he finally heard me and quickly dug himself under a pile of leaves. Apparently their brains are tiny, he was really noisy even while hidden. He came out of hiding, then loudly buried himself again. They are comical little creatures.

Rather like our echidnas I think.
